Find street parking north of Broadway and a few blocks west. We're always able to find parking around 5th West and C. Street parking is free after 6pm. (arrive around 5:45 and pay the quarter to the meter to guarantee a spot.)

Easy to park at Horton Plaza, but definitely remember to get it validated by buying something at the mall. We had lunch at Hard Rock café and then walked across to the event.

Parking in Horton Plaza is incredibly expensive. I've never paid that much for parking there. I'll be looking for alternative places to park.

Really convenient to buy parking ticket for Horton Plaza garage in the Balboa lobby. Turned out to be a good deal @ $10 for 6 hours.

Ate at Gourmet India. Tried to eat at the new Middle Eastern restaurant on side of Horton Plaza but service too slow to make the show.

The weather was nighttime, chilly.. I wore decent black shoes, dark blue jeans (no holes or tears), and a button down shirt. However you could easily get away with a polo. .

Parking in the NBC building for $10 when visiting the Balboa Theatre. There are several restaurants to choose from around the theatre.
